School Bus Drivers Taking It slow

Posted: Updated:

In addition to driving a bus load of kids, school bus drivers now have to deal with these icy road conditions which will probably stick around for a while. Some say it's presenting challenges especially for drivers in rural areas. For the most part the drivers were making it to their destinations on time, but many had to leave earlier. Norbert Miller, a bus driver for Harwood Elementary says,

"It's rather difficult for one thing. Most people really think that a bus can go through any amount of snow, but a bus really is no better than a front wheel drive car. So if we have a lot of snow it does delay us in our routes a little bit so we have to try and leave two or three minutes early in the morning."
